About me

A Closer Look

I have been living, with my family, & working in the Charente Maritime since 2005,

Before " Living the French Dream "........

After leaving school I worked full time, for many years,  in my uncles building company and helped my dad who was a professional painter and decorator working for the

Berkeley Castle Estate in Gloucestershire.

I particularly enjoy being creative. I am a bit of a perfectionist or as some builders have kindly called me " a fussy git ".

For your Holiday Home.....

I offer caretaking services that can be tailored made to suit your

requirements and to give you complete peace of mind, including grass cutting, gardening, security checks, preparing the house for visitors, mail forwarding etc  

OH.. NOT FORGETTING.. I sometimes work alongside my wife!

 you can find her at


I am happy to discuss your requirements and
give you an estimation / quote at no charge.
